i was finally sent a god from the wheelchair dept to assess me because otherwise i cant go shopping unless 2 adults are present where one is pushing me and one is holding my childrens hands and pushing a trolley. not many people have the time of day to do that every week with me. so anyhow alonmg comes the important man to tell me he can not give me an electric scooter because first i have to be eligible to use a wheelchair at home!!! but my house is too small and i have no one to store it and also i am quite capable of movin around my house because i have to do things for myself and kids. can anyone help me and tell me how to go about this? i want to beable to go out with my children. i am a prisoner in my own home. i drive my children to school and drive them back. but they always ask if it is possible to go walking or by bus. i cant even walk down the road to the shops because it is a hill and i cant walk back up and i cant take that risk with the girls.
